There will be no changes to collections over the bank holiday. Please put your garden waste bag out on your normal collection day.
Garden Waste Scheme
Our fortnightly garden waste service offers an affordable way for New Forest residents to recycle their garden waste.
How it works
The service is a convenient way for you to recycle your garden waste, without having to take it to the tip.
On joining for the first time, you will receive a reusable bag to store and present your garden waste in for collection. You will also receive a welcome letter and collection calendar.
Your bag(s) will be collected once a fortnight, with the exception of a break between mid-December and mid-January.
You can use your garden waste bag to dispose of up to 20kg of garden waste.

What happens to your garden waste?
Your garden waste will be taken to a site in Hampshire, where it will be composted by a process known as open windrow composting. The finished product, Pro-Grow, is a high quality soil conditioner that is available to buy at every household waste recycling centre.
